The 40' has been running hot, and despite a new radiator and t-stat I cant get it to cruise at anything other than 220*
It's never boiled over, but 220 is too hot for me and the bus is too long for the route we were hoping to use it on.

All the buses also have air seats.
All the engines are fully mechanical.
HOURS? Right here....In the tach.

Hey Dond,
I know where the hours meters are. The 40' bus has one, the 37'ers dont.
Please read more carefully!

Man, I wish I had some extra funds lying around. These are great. I'd jump on a mechanical 8.3 with 3060 and retarder!

Yes, that is the 40' bus for sale. The 2 37' buses dont appear to have hour meters on them.
If someone can tell me where to check, I will! But ive looked in the engine compt and only found an oil pres gauge.
